Re: IB or sealed?
"Loud" is achievable with IB. But one 10 probably won't satisfy most people's definition of "loud". I went to a DIYMA meet and heard a Protege with 2 15" SS RL-p's IB off 600w and it was loudddd when he turned them up, but for normal use they sounded amazing. They blended with the mids so nicely and sounded so "natural". The bass didn't "hit" you as hard as an enclosed set up. It was much softer and again natural feeling. It didn't feel like a speaker was reproducing music; it sounded like you were listening to non-amplified music live. And that was what made me want to go IB. I've wanted to do it with my 1 12 but I'm afraid it won't have enough output for me. So I think I'm going to sell it and go IB with my 4 E8s. In your car I think 1 10 in your factory spot IB would be interesting for a daily SQ car...but what confuses me is if your subs are mounted IB on the package tray, do you still need to seal off the space behind the seats with a panel?
